Event Description

This two-part online class will be held on June 6 and 13, 2013 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

Emotional Intelligence – maybe you’ve heard the term, but what in the world does it mean? The short answer is simply being intelligent about emotions – yours and others’.  The longer – and much more interesting – answer will fascinate you. Don’t miss this intriguing 2-part online series!

Session 1
In the first session, we’ll discuss the idea of Emotional Intelligence and why interest in the field is increasing. We’ll delve into how our behavioral styles can affect our levels of emotional intelligence. We’ll also take a closer look at emotions:

  • What are emotions anyway?
  • Are we even aware of them when they happen?
  • Can we control them?

Then we will “look in the mirror” and begin to explore the first of the four elements of Emotional Intelligence.

Session 2
In the second session, we will investigate the other three elements of Emotional Intelligence – by probing how we deal with our own emotions and how our emotions affect our interactions with others. We’ll also discover the potential for improving our emotional intelligence, why that matters in the workplace, and why it might be challenging to do so.

This webinar series will be delivered via SEFLIN Connect. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.
